Our call to action this week invites you to show up for women and people of color by supporting their businesses. Check out the resources below for listings of entrepreneurs, restaurants, contractors, and more.

Use your consumer dollars to support businesses owned by women and people of color.

One of the greatest opportunities Oregonians have for economic impact is the choice of where to eat, where to shop, and whose services to use. Make every effort to spend money in ways that align with your values and create wealth in these communities.
